Wat Puthai Sawan
Wat Sawan Phutthai or Monastery of Lord Buddha of the Heavens is one of the 5 temples in Ayutthaya hosting a large reclining Buddha image. Located on the south bank of the Chao Phraya River, on the outskirts of downtown, it dates from the 14th century during the reign of King Ramathibodi I and is one of the first temples built in days when Ayutthaya dominated the region.

If modern buildings were added, there remains a Khmer-style prang representing Mount Meru, which is erected in a courtyard surrounded by a covered walkway with sitting Buddha and of course a large stone reclining Buddha in the ruins of a a small vihara at the back of the temple.
